A World Record Sunday for Pebax Powered® shoes

This Sunday, September 16th 2018, will be remembered for a long time in the track & field and for the sport in general. Two of the mythic World Records have been broken by two amazing athletes.


First, it is in Berlin, Germany, that Eliud Kipchoge, already famous for been the Olympic champion and after attempting to run a marathon under 2 hours with the Nike project Breaking2 in 2017, became this time the official Marathon World Record holder with a time of 2:01:39. He beat the former record from 1 minute and 18 seconds. For this amazing performance, the Kenyan was helped by his Pebax Powered® shoes, the Nike Vaporfly 4% Flyknit, that will be released by Nike on October 4th. Find them here.


In the same time, somewhere else in Europe, in Talence (south west of France exactly), the young french Kevin Mayer passed the 9000 points in Decathlon and break the World Record with a score of 9126 points, 81 points higher than the previous world record set by two-time Olympic gold medalist Ashton Eaton in 2015. During those 10 events, Mayer was wearing several Pebax Powered® track & field Nike models. Find them here.
